Definitely should have included Waccamaw Getaway Fest in Conway SC. Randall Bramblett, Ben Miller band, and groove fetish headlining!
I have known Mr. Bursey since the time of his famous protest against President Bush Jr. in a so-called protest free-zone. I even appealed to President Obama to pardon Mr. Bursey. If anyone knows the meaning of protest and civil disobedience it's my friend Brett Bursey!
If you want to affect real, positive change that benefits everyone, it can't be done by simply ramping up emotion with a public display of discontent. There is too much work left to do when the hub-bub dies down. Forget radical rhetoric and oppositional behavior. Why create bitter, eternal enemies to oppose your cause? Why chance innocent blood on your hands if things get out of hand? If you are willing to die for your cause, then surely you should be willing to work for it. I suppose dying is easier.
if your cause is righteous, then offering your case in a spirit of fellowship should be able to win the day.
Listen, youngsters. I dont need to quote another scholar, I have been hip since hip was hep. Here is how you change the world . . . with positive energy, an open heart, and patience. It's all good and getting better all the time, why deny it? Protest? In ten years all but two of the moment have gone mainstream or sold out to corporate. Those two are still sleeping in the park and eating at the Daily Bread Mission.
Why don't ya'll take this show and place in in New York, where it belongs. It ain't no way Southern.
Who cares? Zero money being made...Just think if they might collaborate..F Nashville and the whole BS...
i had hot chicken...it came out my butt the morning after i went to Hooters for happy hour.
Can't wait for this show!
With so many words you don't have any mention of anything he did that helped make anyone's life better. Organizing is more than self promotion. Is this "organizing" nothing more than a fundraising scam?
The confederate battle flag has been adopted by hate groups as their symbol. Terrorist criminal organizations like the klan and nazis wave this flag. Why steal their flag?
By the way, are criminal charges pending against Muhiyidin d'Baha for his flag grab?
8/8 great festivals.
Why won't someone fix our infrastructure?!?!
Raise my taxes?!?! Fuck outta here! Don't tread on me!
So cool, Charlotte!! Pretty soon you're going to be everyone's fairy godmother!!
The lease is a bit high. No wonder they are quitting. Cannot make it at the location with that much going out the door.
It has been a non-issue since the beginning of public facilities. BTW, transsexuals are trans-gendered that have completed sexual reassignment surgery. Caitlyn Jenner is both trans-gendered and, now, transsexual since she has had the surgery to transform the penis into a vagina. And I think the biggest impediment to respect is misinformation and some folks who are picturing cross-dresser entertainers (Drag Queens) who have nothing to do with being trans-gender. They get paid to dress ridiculously in private establishments where they use the entertainer's facilities safe from the "impressionable" children. Drag Queens can be GBT or Q underneath and is not an indicator of trans-genderism.
And with HB2 in place, the requirement of having a penis to go into the men's room or a vagina to go into the women's room will have a person who looks like a girl, entering the men's room or a person who looks like a boy, entering the ladies room. I see more chance of getting "beaten or gang raped" if you look like the opposite gender entering the other's restrooms than if you look like the person who belongs in that restroom.
Please tell us how to live our lives Ron
"No one ever thinks these things though. And everyone is so quick to judge if one has a different point of view."
This much irony should be illegal.
wait until the first 'female' gets beaten or gang raped in a boys bathroom. ya'll will change your opinion. people are animals. it's a matter of time.
Lots of soft bigotry in this article and comment section. Where are the non bigotted residents of North Carolina? Do such people exist?
The law was political gimmick that has hurt many trans people around America. Trans people in North Carolina are still afraid when in public.
The nation now knows that North Carolina is a bigot.
There has to be common sense and all of this has gotten out of hand. We are talking about less than 1% of the population. Yes, it happens that a boy feels trapped in a girls body or a girl feels trapped in a boys body. It does happen. But do the 99% of the rest of the population have to conform to the 1%? I am sure that transgenders ( when I was growing up we called them , transsexuals) used the ladies room. A bit harder for a female trying to be a man. I guess, he uses a stall.
It's not about the bathroom. That's easy. It's The locker room and if there are showers and the kids are under 18. It's hard enough for heterosexuals going through puberty. Now they have to see a girl with a penis? Or a boy, with a vagina? And starting to grow breasts? Granted, they are starting to give hormones to transgender kids at 11 now. And that is a whole other controversy. But still, they hv the genitals. It's hard on both parties. Once they are over 18, it's a different story. There is a transsexual man on Harvards men's swimming team. Seems the guys r fine with it. She basically looks like a guy. Is a guy.
But for young kids, it's a different story.
No one ever thinks these things though. And everyone is so quick to judge if one has a different point of view.
